Brasenose is a decent sized college, really central with good accommodation - first and third years live in while 2nds live on cornmarket street next to the oxford union (also v central). this said, as quite historic not too many ensuite bathrooms..

Good food - formal three times a week and the buttery ('Gertie's') does legendary breakfasts and snacks..

Brasenose is a beautiful College-so central but yet so relaxed. Walking out of College and finding yourself in one of the most recognised squares in the country is a very rewarding feeling. Accommodation is very variable but is offered to undergrad students generally for eahc year of your course unless you are unlucky! BNC has a great new bar and formal hall happening three times a week makes for a great excuse to catch up over drinks and dinner. Being central means it's great for lectures, clubbing, sports, as you never really have to stray too far. The library is nice and old giving you the boost you may need to finish that essay. Even though BNC may not have any particular strengths (these come and go with rowing, acadmiec merit..) it is super friendly and everyone there is up for a good time.
